Explore living walls and green facades, and the systems used to implement them.
As cities densify and large yards become scarce, vertical gardening becomes the best option for expanding our useable space. Vertical gardens are beautiful, creative additions to your home, bringing nature into unlikely locations. Explore living walls and green facades, and the systems used to implement them. Learn principles of setting up a successful vertical garden in common locations such as fences, walls or patio banisters, and which plants are most suitable for indoor or outdoor vertical gardens. Leave class feeling inspired to transform your space into a natural work of art!
